Apple is set to bring a glass design and wireless charging to its forthcoming iPhone SE 2, in what could prove a major change to its smallest smartphone.
That, at least, is according to rumours emerging in India. A report from one of the country’s leading tech sites suggests Apple is readying a glass back panel for the iPhone SE 2, which will allow it to support wireless charging.
That would put the iPhone SE 2 on a par with last year’s warmly received iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, all of which support wireless charging via accessories compatible with the Qi charging standard.
Apple news sites claimed at the end of 2017 that the company was planning to boost the iPhone SE’s RAM to 2GB, as well as including an A10 chip, first used in 2016’s iPhone 7.
Although such specs would make the iPhone SE 2 highly desirable, the veracity of such rumours remains sketchy at best.
However, with Apple said to be assembling the new phone in India, any leaks are likely to emanate from there.
The iPhone SE 2 is expected to launch in the first half of 2018.
